Sept 7, 2008
For once the weather man hit the nail on the head. Tropical Storm Hanna threatened to wipe out the show but the weather man said it would blow through Saturday night and Sunday would be perfect..........and it was, despite dropping upwards of 5" of rain on the show field. I had visions of British Invasion 2007 where the field was a mud hole and people were stuck all over the place. But the field was perfect with about 40 Triumphs and maybe 80 - 90 cars total spread out all over it.
As usual, I like to take pictures of the unusual......including this group of TR6 friends resting in the shade.
There were 15 TR6's in the show and 5 of them had interesting ways to power their car.

Foster's TR6 with
In addition to these two cars we
had Bill Kopf with twin Webers,
Al Gary with Triple Strombergs and my car with Throttle Body Injection.
Now for the other fun cars.
